an all-time high. what about the economy? while some areas of improving. jobless benefits moving up. new home sales slowing down and a key read on investment plans raising a red flag. so, is wall street signaling a boom or ignoring a coming bust? hi, i'm brenda buttner, this is bulls and bears, let's get to it. the bulls and bears this week, we've got gary b smith, jonas max ferris, john lay field along with julian epstein. welcome to everybody. okay, john, boom or bust? >> unfortunately, brenda, i believe a bust. and i wish that wasn't the case. there are a few positive things going on in the economy, but with long-term structural unemployment, not cyclical unemployment and anemic growth, what gary b brought up weeks ago, the market is detached what's going on in the united states. it's on a run. i don't think that anybody would argue that the enomy is on an incredible run so an obvious detachment. i don't think that's going to change. >> brenda: julian, sometimes people consider wall street to be a leading indicator, like it's a crystal ball for the economy. do you see the economy star
and not just in the emerging economies. the financial crisis of 2008-9 drew record numbers of people in the united states, unemployment, foreclosure, and poverty to say nothing of the devastating impact on the after shocks of the economies and peoples of europe, whether in the first world or the third, there is no place to hide it from the power of policy. also no place for you to hide. [laughter] come out to hear talk about a book on economic policy. you have great courage. but as you can tell from that reading, this book is as much about humanity and relationships as it is about economic policy. and what i would like to do with my remaining time before we open it up for question and answer is just give you a sense of what our release of critical issues. the last paragraph, what are really critical moment in the economy. growth is slow in the events economies. less than 3% last year. europe is in recession. emerging economies are for the first time driving economic recovery. the question is how will we create a more prosperous future? and really in a nutshell the book is about three
in the economy and what's not. >> reporter: that sound you hear is the american economic recovery at its sweetest. the hammers and drills of the housing market. across the country, the median price of a home is up 7% in just the past year. sales of existing homes are at multi-year highs. and since housing is about a fifth of gdp, it may be the best thing we have going. >> as housing starts to bottom and recover, that's the economy. because at the end of the day, americans have more of their net worth in their house than any other asset. and so this is a huge part of the rebuilding of confidence. >> reporter: housing is one of three pillars that are responsible for the recovery as we know it. autos is another. the revitalization of the big three car makers hasn't brought many new plants, but it has brought new production. an estimated 15.5 million units this year. up from just 10.5 million at the lows. some call it the new center of gravity of a manufacturing renaissance. also working, high-end retail. sales at names like macy's, saks and michael coors suggest the wealthy are hold up the populatio
in the regional economy and again there is so much business activity. and we are blessed with just being in this part of the country and the world. i'm very interested in what we are going to hear from our speakers this morning to sort off guide us through this year. now before we get to our program please join me in thanking the organizations and people who made this possible. and you can clap now for awful them but -- this event is jointly presented by san francisco business times and our partner, title sponsor corn irand carey commercial new mark, night, frank. and we are going it hear from dan clef man and dan class man some 14 year ago really came up with this idea, we sat down over lunch and there was another person involved allen cline knelt and which came up with this idea and so i have to give dan much much credit for that. (applause). . very much so. and in 2012, cornish and carey, dominated the area of commercial real estate with over $6 billion in leasing and sales transactions so very good there. and you are soon going to hear from dan and he is going to give us that a go
of books and tours of dissent, best descent of the u.s. economy. the living wage, the building a fare economy. and then more recently, a measure of fairness, the economics of the living wage and minimum wages. and the most recent book is the topic for tonight, back to full employment. i just want to add that the work of a living wage has been very, very important. he's been probably the leading researcher on this important issue. he's published numerous papers and reports in addition to these books. he struggled to cities across the country to speak about the living wage and has testified before many city councils who were considering living wage proposals and i think this is an important contribution i just want to acknowledge that. bob's recent work is focused on the green economy. and the achievement of the twin goals of sustainable energy and full employment. he's written a number of papers and reports on this topic and has worked as a consultant on green energy projects for the u.s. to provide enough energy and the international labor organization and is currently attracting gree
in the housing market. >> reporter: if the economy truly gains traction when and how does the fed pull back on its monetary stimulus. what happens to mortgage rates, to governmentç debt payments. in short, can the economy survive the fed's mandate coming off four years after a bruising economic crisis, no one, it seems, has a good answer for that. carl quintanilla for "nightly business report" new york. >> dig a little deeper and break out some sectors. you heard carl mention the fed and mortgage rates. let's talk about housing. diana oillick from las vegas on how far the housing market has come and how far it needs to go to regain full health. >> reporter: chris and candice rodgers wanted to move to a bigger house. with las vegas homes costing about half what they did during the housing boom, they figured it was the perfect time. except there was nothing to buy. >> we looked at a lot of the existing homes and some are bank-owned. >> reporter: so the rogers turned to new construction, which is suddenly sprouting up all around the city with national and local builders alike coming back to
. >> yes, here is the thing, we have a very difficult economy and i will tell you this, if you're talking about the stock market, the reason why the stock market is up, the fed is printing money. why is the fed printing money? >> because the real economy is not doing that well. >> i don't care though, and just, what is it 48 million alone strikes as a high number. >> now want to know something, a lot of people need. >> hold on a second the question wasn't about the economy. you asked about people getting stuck on it and that's the important-- different question. >> the program should shrink and historically gone down as unemployment falls, if the economy improves the program shrinks. >> our economy is not improving. >> neil: ben stein, what do you make of this. what is accurate to you, you've said any good caring government looks after those who are the most needy. is it in your mind accurate to say that 48 million americans are in need of food stamps? >> when i was at the santa cruz, many kids from wealthy families could go down to the local government office, agriculture department i th
, but we have a difficult economy. i will tell you this if you are talking about stock market, the reason why stock market is fed printing money. why? because the real economy is not doing that well. >> neil: i don't care about that. 48 million alone strikes you as a high number. >> a lot of people need it. >> because the question wasn't about the economy. you are asking people getting stuck on it. that is a different question. >> the program has shrinked and gone down as unemployment falls. if economy improves the program shrinks. >> our economy is not improving. >> neil: ben, what do you make of this. what is accurate as you said many times, any good caring government that looks after those that are most needy. is it accurate 48 million americans are in need of food stamps? >> when i was teaching at u.c. santa cruz there were many kids from wealthy families and go down to the local office and apply for food stamps. there was no checking. they would use the money to buy groceries and buy drugs. i've been somewhat prejudiced against food stamps for that reason. what level of fraud in the
-alone economy in the world. and i'm beginning to develop that thesis more formally. and i think that, listen, while we may have a correction in stocks, i don't think it alters the long-term forecast, where the u.s. is the preeminent economy and the preeminent financial markets in the world going forward for quite some time. >> that's interesting, because you're looking at real changin s s in japan. nouriel roubini just came in the air and said japan is going to rally another 10 to 15% from current levels. would you buy into this move after the huge run-up in japan we've seen? >> absolutely. we've hedged the yen currency. you believe you want to make money if the yen goes down or if the exporters go up. japan has had two decades of deflation. finally for the first time in two decades, they've had a major clang in central bank policy. they're emulating our fed and investing in japan right now is similar to investing in u.s. stocks in 2009, when everybody was afraid, but they had the beginning of their long cycle. >> so you would do the same thing? >> don't fight if bank of japan, no different
. >>> well, tyler, not any upbeat superlatives to describe today's reports on the u.s. economy. in the job market, the number of americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits rose last week by 16,000. but according to most economists, that's not enough to suggest the labor market is weakening. as for the overall economy, growth during the final quarter of last year shows as the economy expanded 0.4%, not a blowout number for gdp but more than the government previously estimated. >>> what's next for the u.s. stock market? let's get some answers from mike holland, chairman of his own money management firm, hole lalan holland & company. you have been in the markets for years. you've been telling me this is the least enthusiastic market in your career. do you think by monday they're going to be more enthusiastic? what's next? >> i don't think so, suzy. i think the comments i heard today from a lot of people who are in the marketplace, it's a smaller number than there used to be at market highs, i should add. the people are looking for when will the next correction be? is this over? it
tonight. andrea, thanks. >>> back here at home double-edged sword on the u.s. economy tonight, promising signs of life that millions of americans aren't feeling yet. but we can say there are more indicators that conditions are turning around. first, there's wall street. today the dow and the s&p both set record highs. an up day across the board, in fact. but there's also spending to look at. it's always good for the american economy when people start buying cars. nearly 1.5 million cars and trucks were sold in the month of march. that's the most in almost six years. and there are other signs. nbc's tom costello is at a ford dealership in vienna, virginia, tonight. tom, good evening. >> hi, brian. ford sales up 6% in march. customers drawn in by those shiny new cars and suvs and trucks, low interest rates, and some statistics that suggest the economy really has found firmer ground. today's signs of economic recovery are right there in the headlights. auto sales in march the best in six years. ford, chrysler, toyota, gm, and nissan, all reporting strong sales. truck and suv sales especiall
have it right all along? are the u.s. economies on the slow road back to recovery and is the great rotation out of bonds into stocks just about over. jeff cox over at cnbc headquarters, rick santelli at the merck. rick, you've been arguing this point for a while, that the economy has a long way to go. >> yeah, i think it does. i mean, let's consider the very simple facts, that we have a sequester that may be $45 billion on the economy in this fiscal year. we've spent trillions of dollars on stimulus, some would call it deficits. and for the last four years, there's been boatloads. and after all of that, we get a jobs number like this. and the discussions are still that something politically created like the sequester was never supposed to fall into place, because the democrats thought the republicans would cave on defense, and they made it messy, that something like that could actually derail a 15.5, $16 trillion economy. what that says to me in english is, our economy is a lot weaker than people think. and as far as interest rates being right or wrong, i think they're mostly right
that contribute $465 billion to the american economy every single year. in addition, we advocate on behalf of 187 major american corporations. we do our work through a network of 200 local chambers and business associations throughout the united states and puerto rico. members are immigrants and we have a unique view of the rule that member entrepreneurs play in building this american economy. bipartisanis a consensus reached by the gang of 8 or a major corporate ceo calling for reform, as we have seen recently from coca-cola, and j.p. morgan, and others. at our national legislative summit, we heard from leaders as andous from democratic republican parties from nancy pelosi to senator rand paul, as they shared their vision for comprehensive immigration reform. what i have learned from numerous conversations from national business and political leaders is that it is not known lager -- it is no longer a question of if immigration reform will pass, but when and how. the united states hispanic chamber of commerce is committed to helping pass comprehensive immigration reform. given the entrepreneurial
>>> the stock market continueses i bull run, but the wider economy is still playing catch up. is it too early to celebrate america's coming reason advance? i'm ali velshi and this is "your money." the dow is up 11%. that's better than you would do in some years. those who invested since the market bottomed have taken advantage of 130% rise in the s&p 500. that's the benchmark index for retirement investments including your 401(k). then there's housing. that other leg on the stool. finally, housing bottomed out last year with home prices steadily going up largely due to historically low mortgage rates. with home values climbing again, americans have gotten back their number one tool to help build wealth and put it it to work for them. and finally there's this boom in america's energy sector which has already started to reduce america's dependence on foreign oil and has crushed natural gas prices. industry is taking advantage of the savings to bring back manufacturing jobs for the country. i continue to maintain this energy boom could fuel an economic renaissance in america for
between wall street and pension giant score one for calpers for now. economy and home prices tanked while at the same time it had some of the most generous public employee benefits in california and that's saying something. credit stores were fighting the bankruptcy filing in court because they said it wasn't fair they were taking haircuts but calpers was not. stockton argued under california law, it isn't a creditor. it had to be paid. today, federal judge christopher klein said the bankruptcy could go ahead and that creditors were the ones so far acting in bad faith. >> there's no reason by the first anniversary of our filing that we don't have a plan of adjustment agreed to by our creditors. city of stockton makes deals, we negotiate, we've already negotiated ten deals, a handful more and we look forward to that opportunity. >> the judge did not rule out the possibility that calpers could see cuts to the pension obligations. that's not happening for the moment. chapter 9 was allowable and necessary, michelle for the city to continue to provide basic services. >> you described, you said
to that in a moment and we will start with jobs in the states. the economy just adding 88,000 jobs in march and below consensus of 200,000. the unemployment rate did tick .1% lower to 7.6, guys, the result of a labor participation rate. the lowest since '79. what do you think? >> look, this is just bad, okay? i'm a silver lining playbook kind of guy, i don't have one. >> yes, you are. >> i'm trying to put myself where we were in our heads three, four weeks ago thinking, we heard about sequester. we heard that this was going to be a paralysis and the people were going to get laid off. that put the fear into a lot of employers. i do think that this is on washington, now you can say some of it's europe and some of it's china, and that's why i blame this number? >> do you think this is a sequester effect? sequester, payroll tax and increase of the rich. they want to increase the tax on the rich even more by changing the deduction level. they're very out of step with the country. they think that what with they did did to hurt and we would layoff people left and right. look at dell. look at f-5. is it some
a second ago, the numbers in the u.s. economy continue to be better than most other places in the world. so say for a place to be, look at europe, it's more predictable. look at china. we do have a valuation level here that i think continues to be one that is actually kind of crazy to me in terms of attractiveness. it's crazy attractive. and i think that when you get great companies in the u.s. trading at 10, 12, 14 times earnings with 1, 2, 3, almost 4% yields in some cases versus what else is out there, it's not even a close call. >> i want to make a quick switch over to commodities. i know you're not a fan of gold. it closed just under $1600 an ounce. but you like other commodities. which ones and why? >> i think overall the economy is going to move up by china and the u.s. i think overall the commodities -- i don't expect the kind of run over the past decade when china was red hot, but i think i have the support level under the commodity markets. i actually would probably buy the stocks rather than commodities directly. if you bought in the energy area, exxon and devon energy, natural g
a program to stimulate the japanese economy through a bond buying program. while stocks rallied in japan, and some of that enthusiasm spread to wall street, with the major stock averages bouncing back from yesterday's losses. the dow rose 55 points. the nasdaq and s&p both added six points. >>> a bumpy run of economic data in recent days, including the jobless claims numbers that susie just mentioned has put a more halting rhythm in stocks over the past week, and it has raised the stakes for tomorrow's official employment report from the government. hampton pearson has more now from washington. >> reporter: the lines at unemployment offices across the country got a little longer last week. jobless claims increased by 28,000. that's the third straight weekly hike. and the new seasonally adjusted average of 385,000 has not been this high since the end of november. unemployment claims are often a proxy for future layoffs. a closely watched report from challenger gray and christmas shows employers announced just over 49,000 job cuts last month, down 11% from february, but 30% higher than a y
ground into the close. again ending the day you can see at 1.7%. concerns over a slowing economy and a large build-up in supplies sent oil tumbling 4.6% this week week. this is the biggest percentage weekly loss since way back in september. grade ended the day at $92.70 a barrel. we're going to be covering that and a whole lot more. liz claman is at raymond james trading floor. "after the bell" starts right now. david: what a way to end the week. a very busy trading day. lots of action as the dow looks like it is settling 41 points to the negative. let's get right to it. we have larry shover in the pits of the cme. mark luschini has a bearish outlook on the markets but that doesn't mean there isn't money to be made. he will tell us where. and adolfo talking about the structural issues. we'll get right to it with larry at the cme. larry, despite the day's numbers we had a comeback in the market. i would say that is a buy cue that the market would come back fighting these lousy numbers. what do you say? >> i say traders and myself are paralyzed right now. we're in a situation in my
. and look at this quarter. what a wonder. it does make you wonder if the markets are soaring, and economy is improving, and housing is returning, you would think certainly food stamps, they would be plummeting. just the opposite. food stamps are rocketing, how is that? why is that? we're on it. you won't believe it. plan plan look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden mptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye

to speak on to topic to promote a stronger economy. the vital rule in growing use of communication in monetary policy. some of you covered the federal reserve and are familiar with how it sits monetary policy to the federal open market committee. you know that the influence c.p. pays close attention in what it says in the statements it issues after each meeting. this is supplemented by chairman bernanke's press conferences and providing detailed minutes of the meetings. getting this message out to the public depends on the work that you do in reporting and analyzing the statements and actions and explaining its roles and objectives. want to thank you for those contributions. let me also say while i'm particularly pleased to speak to you fape all of you are consumers and producers of communication. at first glance, the o.f.m.'s communication may not seem different from what you've heard other government agencies about what they say about their policies or what businesses say about their products. i hope to show how communication plays a distinct and special role in monetary policy.
coming in at 46.8. as you can see, the euro is roughly unchanged. some economies, the biggest ones have seen while they're still in contraction some improvement from the flash numbers two weeks ago. the euro is up about 0.1%. 1.28 is the level. markets perhaps don't have a worse tone keying off the session we had in the u.s. yesterday. let's dig into these figures a little bit and get a sense of just how we're starting the month off here. holger, i can run through some of these figures. we've got the pmi falling. it was 46. 6/. it was 46.8, just a touch better, but still, contractionary territory. >> it's basically fairly bad news what we had with the eurozone in terms of economic data. after a pretty good run which lasted until february, march has been a softer month. apparently the political volleys in italy and at the end plus some concerns about china seem to be weighing on sentiment going forward, at least, we learned yesterday from the chinese pmi, which has been up, these concerns about china should be easing a bit. but for the moment, the outlook for the eurozone is modest reces
not only effected the domestic economy and people's daily lives, it also led to a decline in the number of tourists. tourism is a key source of currency revenue for vietnam. state-run television is broadcasting the results of the government crackdown. on thursday, they reported that authorities had arrested a smuggler trying to bring a car parked with chickens in from china. the vietnamese government is instructing organizations to disclose information about the h7n9 virus. the authorities want to stop fear among the public as well as prevent an epidemic. nhk world, hanoi. >>> asean member countries are also watching the strain of avian flu. here in tile land, they are not confirmed any human cases however the public health ministry has ordered hospitals nationwide to closely monitor patients with severe respiratory problems. >>> pakistan is headed for general elections in may. young people in the country are looking ahead and what they see is not rosy. an overwhelming majority of them have a pessimistic view of the future according to the latest survey. around 94% of pakistanis between

there is volatility out there, and there are certain sectors of the economy that seem to be taking the hit harder than others. >> reporter: earlier this week, there was also disappointing news about private sector job growth. businesses only added 158,000 jobs last month. according to the closely watched survey from payroll processor adp, far short of economists' expectations for nearly 200,000 new jobs. last month, the labor department told us payrolls increased by 236,000, and the unemployment rate fell to 7.7%. but this week's soft jobs data has wall street traders softening expectations about tomorrow's jobs numbers. >> starting to hear people dial back to 160, 170, somewhere in there. >> if tomorrow's jobs numbers from here at the labor department come in lower than expected, look for businesses and investors to start to worry about still another soft patch for the economy. for "nightly business report," i'm hampton pearson, in washington. >> well, what happens with the economy will shape what is next for stocks. joining us to talk about what we can expect, bruce kazman, and bob doll. gentlemen,
, and the long-term stability of the u.s. economy. they spoke at a conference held at george washington university. this is one hour and 10 minutes. >> welcome. thank you for being here today. when we name this panel month because -- months ago, we called the new austerity, thinking the nation would be in the midst of major discussions about austerity and probably a lot further along than we now see that we are. we knew we had a debt problem. the nation knows we have a debt problem. the question is, what do we do with that and who feels the pain? we seem to be caught there in who feels the pain. the public is adamantly have to do something with that debt. i don't know about you, but i write about the economy and the market that i get the mails from people constantly screaming we have to do something about the debt. are of these people hoarding gold because they figure a disaster is coming. but then you get to the questions that you have seen in some of the polling -- people believe we have to do something about the debt, but then you get to the specifics like medicare, social security a
